Podcast: The JFW Podcast
In this episode we talk about:
The issues with low-carb / Keto diets & intermittent fasting - How they affect our health from the energetic level to blood sugar regulation to thyroid and reproductive hormones
The detailed issues with the "calories in - calories out" equation and why it doesn't add up (calories are not equal, our bodies adapt, excess energy doesn't cause fat gain)
The concept of hormesis - essentially the idea that small amounts of stress are beneficial ("what doesn't kill you makes you stronger") and how this concept has been misconstrued.
